Gender pay reporting legislation requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing the pay gap between their male and female employees. The gender pay gap shows the difference in the average pay between all men and women in a workforce.
It is important to distinguish this from Equal Pay, which deals with the pay differences between men and women who carry out the same jobs, similar jobs or work of equal value. It is unlawful to pay people unequally solely because of their gender.
